5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Level 5? I'd say so., 27 Feb. 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Rogue Galaxy (PS2) (Video Game)
Rogue Galaxy is a rather typically plotted RPG in which you play as Jaster Rogue, a boy living on a desert planet who dreams of heading into space who ends up falling in with a gang of space pirates and going on an adventure across the universe to find an ancient treasure. Nothing terribly original or exciting here, but the game itself more than makes up for the relatively unremarkable plot.

With some stunning looking visuals that are reminiscent of earlier Level 5 titles Dragon Quest VIII and Dark Chronicle, you explore lush, richly detailed worlds that are not only huge, but have practically no loading times at all to break up the action, which is a huge plus in a game like this, as you won't be waiting for the (sadly, random) battles to load up. The battles themselves are quite nice, played in a sort of Kingdom Hearts real time manner as opposed to turn based combat as you'd usually get in Japanese RPGs, they do get rather samey after a while, but the boss battles are usually quite nicely done and challenging with it if nothing else.

It's a large, rewarding game that is a lot of fun to play through, with some interesting sub quests and diversions from the main plot to keep you going for up to 100 hours as promised on the box easy.

If you like Level 5's prior games, you'll get a blast out of this. If not, you could still do a lot worse than get this.
